A new version of a beloved classic by Mexican superstar Thalía surfaced online on Aug. 3. She sings "Regresa a Mí" completely in English on "Don't Close the Door."

"Regresa a Mí" (Come Back to Me) is one of the singles from Thalía's 2000 album Arrasando. She is known for taking on the English-language market with her self-titled crossover record from 2003 that included the hit "I Want You" with Fat Joe. True Thalía fans know she started singing in English (and impressively Tagalog) on the 1997 Philippines release Nandito Ako.

With the success of Arransando, apparently there were plans to record an English version of the album, which would've been a crossover move three years earlier than "I Want You." Thalía teased a taste of those sessions with "It's My Party," an English-language version of "Arrasando." She mentioned "Entre El Mar y Una Estrella" getting re-recorded during that time, but nothing ever materialized. Instead of the getting that fabled English version of "Entre," fans were surprised with "Don't Close the Door" this month.

A CD-R of "Don't Close the Door" appeared around June and the audio followed earlier this month. The dreamy electronica of "Regresa a Mí" is left intact with Thalía pining for a former flame but now in English. "Don't close the door / Don't turn around and walk away," she belts with a bit of Auto-Tune. Compared to "It's My Party," "Don't" sounds fuller and more complete with Thalía relying less on background singers and more on her own voice. She sings her heart out and translates the magic of the original into another language.

Thalía is getting ready for the follow-up to 2016's Latina album. She released the first single "No Me Acuerdo" with Natti Natasha back in June.
